Marine General Speaks of Our Ignorant “Casualness and Swagger”

Remember that old line from the ancient TV show “Dragnet”? “Just the facts, M’am.” Well, the facts keep being spoken. Are we listening?

“My sincere view is that the commitment of our forces to this fight was done with a casualness and swagger that are the special province of those who have never had to execute these missions – or bury the results.

– quoting Marine Lt. Gen. Greg Newbold, retired, former director of operations at the Pentagon’s military joint staff, who is finally going public with his perceptions of this Administration’s war leadership. From an article in Time magazine. (Thanks to a Sojourners email newsletter.)
